About Our Studio

Celebrating over 20 years Academy of Ballet has been the top destination for dance instruction. The School has been voted Best of  Inside Gwinnett and  selected for the Norcross Small Business Excellence Award.

The great success of the studio  prompted the Cathleen Cronin-Dunlap to open a NEW STATE OF THE ART DANCE STUDIO in the Peachtree Corners/Norcross area 5 years ago.  We are conveniently located at the corner of Spalding Drive and Holcomb Bridge Road. We serve surrounding areas such as Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Roswell, Alpharetta, Duluth, and John’s Creek. The 5200 square foot studio has 3 large studios with professionally sprung floors, ample dressing and waiting area, study area, teacher’s lounge, and 3 bathrooms.

 The outstanding faculty comes with  professional backgrounds and or degrees in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop and Acrobatics.

The family like loving environment at the Academy is for ages 2.5 years-Adult.  There are many opportunities to dance and perform.  Classes are offered for all seeking dance. There are programs for the serious dancer, pre-professional dancer, recreational dancer, dance for fitness, and baby ballerinas.

We strive to share our love of dance, provide excellent instruction, and to build strong relationships with each of our dancers and their families.

Widening the road Holcomb Bridge and Spalding

Construction is expected to begin in early 2020.
Relief is finally in sight for commuters and residents who regularly drive the heavily traveled section of Spalding Drive in Peachtree Corners from Winters Chapel Road to Holcomb Bridge Road. Plans have been approved for the project which includes road widening, replacing the Crooked Creek bridge and adding pedestrian walkways.

The work on this .6 mile of road will be partially funded through $2 million in grants issued to Gwinnett County through the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA). The total contracted project cost is $6.6 million and will be a coordinated effort by Gwinnett County and the cities of Peachtree Corners and Sandy Springs.

The work will involve widening Spalding Drive from two to four lanes plus a center turn lane from Winters Chapel Road to just west of the intersection with State Route 140/Holcomb Bridge Road; replacing the bridge over Crooked Creek and installing sidewalks and a multi-use path on Spalding Drive. The project also includes constructing a dedicated right turn lane from Winters Chapel Road onto Spalding Drive.

In addition, the existing traffic signals on Winters Chapel Road and River Exchange Drive will be upgraded and curb and gutter and associated drainage improvements will be installed.

“This is welcome news,” said Councilmember Phil Sadd. “Spalding Drive is a very busy road that runs through our city and is used not only by our citizens but those traveling from Gwinnett County to Sandy Springs. Additionally, the new bridge and pedestrian improvements will further enhance our efforts to make Peachtree Corners a more walkable city.”

The project has been awarded to CMES, Inc. Work is slated to begin in the first quarter of 2020 and is expected to take 24 months to complete.

See what our dancers and their families love about us

I looked at several ballet schools in the area before I settled on Academy of Ballet in Peachtree Corners. As a dancer myself, I am VERY picky about the studio my daughter attends. I wanted a reputable studio that wasn’t games half the class but was still relaxed enough to be fun for her. It’s very well balanced. My daughter started in an hour class and they work the WHOLE time. Ballet is a discipline and they treat it as such, which I love. But, of course, the girls still have lots of fun!  All of the teachers I’ve had a chance to meet and interact with are great and the director, Miss Cathy is wonderful as well! I highly recommend Academy of Ballet to anyone looking for a dance studio for their little dancer!

I’ve been looking for a while for an adult ballet class and was so excited to find this one at Academy of Ballet. I danced for years when I was younger, but life and kids took me away from it for quite a while. I must admit I was a little nervous to hop back in but the class has been awesome and is one of the highlights of my week now! Whether you are looking to have an outlet for dance as an adult or just looking to increase flexibility and muscle memory or even just get a good workout in, this is an awesome way to do it!
